Your problems sound like mine. I was diagnosed to have disc prolapse. I am fine now after physiotherapy sessions and use of lumbar belt that my doctor prescribed me. Try asking your doctor for the same.

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement Dr. Swetal Bhavsar's  Response
Back pain may be from spondylitis , arthritis of facets , disc prolapse , nerve impingement or muscles...some uncommon but not rare causes are infection & tumors.
Back pain with leg pain is usually due to radiating pain of pressure on nerves.
Don't neglect if there is numbness and tingling or weakness in muscles or bladder bowel dysfunction.
Please get MRI of spine done after baseline X rays and blood Investigations. It costs about 200 USD in India. Once we find out exact cause we can treat the problem in a true way.

My left knee has strong pain when I get up from a chair. Three weeks ago, I got into my sister s big truck and when we were finished with a long drive, I almost could not stand on it. Then pain came on the inside of my knee and back side every time I get up or am sitting for too long. What did I do, and how can I help my knee heal.

Hello -

Wife is 65 years old and suffers from extreme constipation. She receives excellent medical care, UNC & Duke graduates, but neither her primary physician or her plethora of specialists seem to be able to offer practical suggestions.

Situation resulted from surgery in 2001 four “flat back” syndrome secondary to scoliosis. Nerve damage occurred during surgery with many negative outcomes, such as, chronic pain, bladder and bowel dysfunction, some paralysis in right leg.

She manages well, in spite of, these difficulties and prior to surgery was high functioning in very responsible position.

She takes heavy narcotics for pain which, of course, contributes to her problem. Also, she takes Miralax and copious fluids.

Bowel movements are unpredictable and can take hours to complete. This part of her disability severely constricts her quality of life.

Are there any suggestions, short of a colostomy, which might alleviate her symptoms of constipation, as well as, relieving the constipation itself.

I understand this is a complicated medical situation, but I am interested only in the bowel management issues.

Any suggestions? Any recommendations? Any solutions?

Thanks very much for your time and attention to this problem.
